"Mammootty or Mohanlal, whom do you like the most?" is a question that is sure to lead fights between the fans of the Malayalam superstars. The fan fights happen especially when the movies of the actors get released. If a Mammootty-starrer hits the theatres, the fans of Mohanlal try to degrade the former's movie in as all ways possible and vice-versa.

Now, with the release of Mohanlal's Pulimurugan and Mammootty's Thoppil Joppan on the same day, the fight between the two teams has become inevitable. In an attempt to ruin the success of Thoppil Joppan, the fans of Mohanlal have allegedly shared the news on the comedy entertainer hitting the mini-screens soon. A photo, which is said to be photo-shopped, has been doing the rounds on social media claiming that the Mammootty-starrer will telecast on popular entertainment channel Surya TV.
